Returning From Leave, Exchange, or Field Study

Quick Link: Fall 2014 Housing Preference Form for students returning from leave, field study, or exchange for the fall 2014 semester.

Students wishing to return to full-time enrollment must notify the Center for Academic Suport and Advising prior to the Enrollment Notification Deadline. Shortly after the Enrollment Notification Deadline, students will receive an email at their Hampshire email address with instructions on how to be placed in on-campus housing, or apply for off-campus status. These applications may only be filed after the Enrollment Notification Deadline.

The arrival date for the fall semester is Monday, September 1. Information concerning final housing arrangements and other details will be sent to students’ Hampshire email addresses a few weeks before their arrival on campus (or as they become available).

Hoping to participate in the housing lottery? During the week of April 14, all students currently on leave, field study, or exchange who have declared their intention to return to full enrollment next semester will receive an email (at their Hampshire email address) with instructions on how to be housed for the fall, including how to participate in the lottery. Students will be asked to fill out a housing preference form, which will include a spot to name a "proxy," a student who is currently enrolled at Hampshire who can act on their behalf during the lottery.

Wondering what room you've been assigned to? Housing assignments will be available on The Hub no later than one week prior to students’ arrival on campus.

Previously lived off campus? If a student has previously been assigned to off-campus status, they will retain that status automatically. To return to campus housing, they must file a return to campus request and housing preference form.

Hoping to live off campus for the first time? Off-campus status is granted on a limited basis. Please consult our off campus page for details.

Questions or concerns? Please feel free to contact the housing operations office with any questions or concerns regarding your housing options, the Housing Preference Form, deadlines, or procedures.

We look forward to seeing you again!
